The duties of a godparent don't have to - and shouldn't - end on a godchild's baptism day. Perhaps there is no greater gift we can give our godchild than the gift of our ongoing prayers. As godparents we can help the life of grace flourish within their souls in praying fervently for them, aiding God in transforming them into the persons He desires them to be. Allow this simple prayer guide and journal to give you the motivation and tools you need to make praying for your godchild a priority this year—and always.
